Apple Cider & Cinammon Apple Waffles

Apple Cider & Cinnamon Apple Waffles

Fall is here again. In Michigan that means apples: Applesauce. Apple Pie. Caramel Apples. Apple Cider. And of course, the fall favorite, Apple Cider Donuts. A crispy outside sprinkled in sugar and a soft inside full of apple and cinnamon flavor. I wanted to make some, but alas, donut making has been prohibited in our house due to past experiences with hot oil.

{However, it was a donut accident that helped draw my wife to me. When we were dating she once gave a heartfelt attempt to make  me peanut donuts. But the hot oil splashed up and burned her foot. When I saw it and asked what happened she told me the story. I looked in pity at the sight of donut stigmata on her foot and knew she really must love me.}

So instead of donuts I decided to make Apple Cider & Cinnamon Apple Waffles

Apple Cider Waffles

I followed the directions for waffles on the pancake box and added about 1/2 tsp of cinnamon into the mix. Instead of adding water, I added leftover apple cider in the fridge. I then peeled and cored a small apple into fingernail-sized pieces and threw them into the batter. The batter was a little watery; the solution was to decrease the cider by a few Tbs and add about only half an apple. Tossing the apple pieces in flour and freezing them for a few minutes before mixing into the batter seemed to help too. Because of the juicy apples and cider, the batter needed to bake longer and at a higher temperature than usual to obtain crispness.

When they came out of the waffle maker, I buttered them and sprinkled on some cinnamon sugar too. They also taste good with maple syrup or caramel sauce/dip.

While not quite the same as apple cider donuts,t hey ended up being sweet, crispy, and full of apple flavor, or “scrumptious” per the lovely wife.
